The BC Library uses Library of Congress classification to organize its books. This means that all of the call numbers start with a letter, and that each letter stands for a certain subject. The letter for books on music is M. This means that all books about music will have a call number starting with the letter M.
The books listed below have been divided into three categories: general books on music, books on music history, and books on musicians. If you see a book you like, you should write down the book's call number and go find the book in the white-labeled shelves in the back of the library. You can check out any of these books.
If you would like to see if we have a particular book in the BC Library, you can search for books by title, author, or topic (subject) in the library catalog.
As a rule, most books about musicians will have a call number starting with ML 410. You can browse the section of the library where the ML 410s are shelved, and to check if the library has a book on a musician you are interested in, you can search the library catalog in the "Subject begins with" category by putting your musician's name down with the last name first (example: Simone, Nina).
